There are folks that ship by ship containers at greatly reduced fares, of course the container has to be full. There are also the RORO ships, but I have no idea if they head north. It seems that I have read of folks shipping to Europe on RORO for about $1,000. As reference, there are companies that will take your moto from southeast Florida to Germany for approximately $800. However the lack of competition, competence and overall corruption makes shipping from South America a whole different ball game. That is the reason Canada Air stopped flying motos down there. When I go, I am planning on using one route down and another route back up to visit all of the countries, except for Venezuela. Of course I am retired and do not have time limitations. It is very likely that we will fly back to USA/Mexico for a month after traveling for a few months and then return for a few more. One other comment, if the owner of this Thread does not mind. There is a Moto Rental company in Peru or Ecuador that will assist you in buying a moto and then buy it back from you after your trip.
